OK. So let's put this in layman's terms for you....

Hypothyroidism is the disease state in humans and in animals caused by insufficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland.

Subclinical hypothyroidism occurs when thyrotropin (TSH) levels are elevated but thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) levels are normal. In primary hypothyroidism, TSH levels are high and T4 and T3 levels are low. Endocrinologists are puzzled because TSH usually increases when T4 and T3 levels drop. TSH prompts the thyroid gland to make more hormone. Endocrinologists are unsure how subclinical hypothyroidism affects cellular metabolic rates (and ultimately the body's organs) because the levels of the active hormones are adequate. Some have proposed treating subclinical hypothyroidism with levothyroxine, the typical treatment for overt hypothyroidism, but the benefits and the risks are unclear. Reference ranges have been debated as well. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (ACEE) supports a narrower TSH range, especially when the person has clinical signs of thyroid disease. This reference range may reduce the risks of goiter, thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, and overt hypothyroidism, but remains controversial. There is always the risk of overtreatment and hyperthyroidism. Some studies have suggested that subclinical hypothyroidism does not need to be treated. A meta-analysis by the Cochrane Collaboration found no benefit of thyroid hormone replacement except "some parameters of lipid profiles and left ventricular function". A more recent metanalysis looking into whether subclinical hypothyroidism may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, as has been previously suggested, found a possible modest increase and suggested further studies be undertaken with coronary heart disease as a end point "before current recommendations are updated.

Hope this helps.

I have hypothyroidism.
You will need to take Thyroxin for the rest of your life.

By all accounts I should be fat, but I'm not.
I used to sleep more than 12 hours a night and just couldn't wake up once upon a time.

My all time record for being asleep is 22 hours!!! My O.H. used to check I was still alive!

You'll feel much better once they get your dose right.

Hypothyroidism is a total bummer.
I was totally exhausted by walking up the stairs once.
But hey! Tablets! You've seen me on that dancefloor, right! Laughing

Wrong on so many different levels but I love to dance so I just dont give a shit! Laughing
